We kindly suggest that you read the entire description, as we try to give you detailed technical and historical information to guarantee the authenticity of our objects. Interesting French chair in the Louis XVI style; the wooden frame, painted with gold paint and then antiqued, is embellished with elegant neoclassical motifs; the legs are straight and fluted; the sturdy seat is made of Vienna straw, and is much wider than normal, the soft purple cushion just rests on it; the backrest is commensurate with the seat, so it is very wide, divided into three sections and finished with fine Vienna straw work. The chair was made between 1950 and 1955 in a craftsman's workshop near Paris certainly by a very skilled cabinetmaker, a revival inspired by the Louis XVII style; in fact, 1950s pieces often incorporated design elements from earlier periods. The process of constructing the back and seat, made of "Vienna straw," uses equally spaced holes and woven plant material (drawn guinea cane) and has been known since Egyptian times, but it was in the mid-1800s that it became popular worldwide. The Louis XVI style emerged in the late 18th century and is characterized by a neoclassical design, with straight lines, classical ornamentation, and an overall understated appearance. It is inspired by ancient Greek and Roman architecture. Louis XVI's furniture often includes elements such as fluted legs, rosettes, and geometric patterns. Although our chair is not an original 18th-century piece, it has been skillfully and expertly constructed and has taken on a personal and unrepeatable charm, becoming a discreet and original piece of furniture, capable of creating a calm and tranquil atmosphere, lending romance and sophistication to any type of decor. The chair is in good condition. Measures width cm.73, depth cm.53, height cm.45.
